Well hello! I fell of the earth for a bit and finally find my way back. Phew! And when I say “fell off the earth,” I really mean I’ve been tackling an enormous pre-baby-#4 to-do list (baby due in 3 weeks). Thankfully, I finally reached item #47: Post something new on BitchinDietitian.com! And here it is. A standby since watermelons have appeared at CostCo, and a creative way to get more watermelons in your life if you’re tackling high blood pressure (new research here).
Watermelon Protein Cooler
Serves 3 (or 1 very thirsty pregnant lady!)
4 cups watermelon chunks (about 430 grams)
12 frozen strawberries (or 12 fresh strawberries, stems removed, plus 1 cup ice)
2 tsp lime juice (fresh is best!)
8 ounces almond milk, hemp milk, or other non-dairy milk
1 scoop protein powder of choice (I like Plant Fusion vanilla)
Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
Each serving has 121 calories, 18 g carbs, and 9 g protein.
See you sooner than later. Cheers! xoxo
